Ogden Swept in Billings
The Raptors suffered their first series sweep since the opening week of the season, losing 14-7 in Billings. Thirteen of the runs came in the first five innings.

Starter Jon Redding and relievers Javier Solano and Marcel Prado did themselves no good by walking nine and hitting four, plus tossing three wild pitches.

Cold winds and a 31-minute rain delay didn't help things along.

Ogden scored five times in the seventh after he game was out of hand. Joe Becker tripled and Pedro Baez banged a double. Steve Caseres bses-loaded double drove in three more.

Casares finished with a pair of hit and three RBI. Jesse Mier walked three times and scored twice.

It's off to Great Falls for the Raptors to meet the Voyagers. Geison Aguasviva (0-2, 5.20) draws the start for Ogden.

DSL Dodgers Pull One Out
The Dominican Dodgers waited until the last minute before scoring twice in the last of the ninth to top the White Sox2 2-1. Erick Lantagua's double knocked in Tito Franco and Bladimir Franko, who had walked, to put the game out of the fire.

The runs came to late for Antonio Castillo, who had lowered his ERA to 1.16 with seven scoreless innings, during which he allowed only a pair of runs.

Joel Lima allowed a Sox run in the top of the ninth to break a 1-1 tie and was saved further damage by Yenifree Hanson (2-1), who retired the final two batters of the inning and earned the win when the Dodgers rallied.

Lantigua was the only Dodger with a pair of hits.
